Broughty Ferry train station, originally opened in 1838, is now the oldest train station in Scotland which is still operating. Its original buildings have long since been removed or replaced. Some were rebuilt between 1879 and 1900 when ownership changed. An accident in 1991, which led to the destruction of gates at the level crossing, meant that further restoration and changes were needed and an historic footbridge which once crossed the lines was removed shortly after. Today, the two platforms at Broughty Ferry are linked by an underpass with steps, though both also have ramp access from the street. There are public toilets in the adjacent car park.
Services to Broughty Ferry train station have also changed significantly over the years. Currently, seven southbound trains and nine northbound trains depart daily. Direct services to Glasgow Queen Street and Edinburgh take a minimum 1 hour 22 minutes and 1 hour 19 minutes respectively. The fastest journey to Aberdeen takes 1 hour and 8 minutes.
